My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Empowerment International Inc, Boulder, CO, USA
I volunteered to raise funds and attend the 8 day, 375 mile bike ride around Lake Nicaragua in Jan 2011. I assisted with driving a support vehicle and I raised $2,060 in donations so I could bike/attend the event.
I also hosted a "meet and greet" between Kathy Adams, CEO/Founder and some of my friends when Kathy visted the DC area in Sept 2010. We skyped Deepa and some of the kids in from Nicaragua. It was a fun evening and allowed for my friends to meet Kathy and the kids firsthand and learn much about EI.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
The next bike ride, I think it would be nice for the kids if more of them were able to attend. It would afford them the opportunity to see parts of Nicaragua they may not have the opportunity to see any other way.
